Nancy Simon, AM, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Evanston
I specialize in marriage and premarital counseling. I love helping anyone who is single understand what's preventing them from finding a life partner. Since 1990, I have helped people lift themselves out of relationship struggles, depression, anxiety and self-limiting beliefs. I work particularly well with highly sensitive and creative people. I graduated with a Masters from the University of Chicago specializing in individual, couples and family therapy and then went on for advanced training. I offer both long and short-term counseling.
I enjoy working with married and unmarried couples, college students and empty-nesters. From 2009-2016 I led a "Relationships 101'' Group Therapy which was transformative and life changing for many. Currently, I lead a women's group art therapy where clients explore their relationships with self and others through art making.
I am an intuitive and creative thinker and have had much success working with college students, business professionals, engineers, artists, parents and therapists. I also provide group counseling. I received my Certificate in Art Therapy from Northwestern University so, when people are open to it, they can use art to express themselves.

Nancy Simon's Groups

Women's Art Therapy Group

This lovely group of women started meeting in 2017. We make art each week and then share and discuss. This group is on-going. We meet for 4 weeks and then take a week off and start up again the next week adding new members or just continuing with those who have stayed. If you have been struggling with relationships and like to make art, this might be the group for you. This is a safe place to learn and grow. Please call or e.mail for a screening.
